Well I walked in the pouring rain
The voice of doom was shining in my room
Lord, I just need one day
Well, I've been breaking these rocks
Yes, I'll be breaking these rocks

And I know too well what's keeping me here
Oh, give me the night, I can't take another sight

And cutting this hay
What's my price to pay?
Sun keeps beating down on me, wall's a mile high

I won't be breaking no rocks
I said, I won't be breaking no rocks
Will pardon them (I won't be breaking no rocks)
(I won't be breaking no rocks)
When the kingdom comes
When the kingdom comes
When the kingdom comes
When the kingdom comes
